Richard Swift

23 Jan
For those of you not familiar with Richard Swift you should know that since his debut double disc in 2005 he’s been making incredibly crafty records filled with charming pop melodies and songs that you can drive around all day to. To me he’s always had this early Todd Rundgren vibe (through Something/Anything-era) with the sophisticated songwriting range of someone like Nick Lowe, and he’s also able to throw in some cool influences like soul and jazz and doo-wop music as well. Swift is a rather fantastic American pop song writer who is deserving of a much larger audience than he already has.

His fine work can be found on Secretly Canadian and his new album The Atlantic Ocean is due on April 7th. Maybe this album will do the trick. Check out this new song from his forthcoming album; then head for some other stuff….
